Staff Travels: New Orleans
Lizzie, who manages our Chelsea shop, spent a weekend in New Orleans, where she observed a vodou ceremony. She shared some of her snapshots with us.
I recently took a trip to New Orleans to explore the city and an interest in local vodou and spiritual practices. Two major discoveries were the Island of Salvation Botanica in the Marigny district and the New Orleans Voodoo Spiritual Temple. We were invited to observe a vodou ceremony on Saturday night, hosted by local artist and vodou priestess, Sallie Ann Glassman. Sallie also founded the New Orleans Healing Center, an organization devoted to rebuilding and revitalizing her community post-Katrina.
